Here is a hanger embroidered fox that can be a catch all for the odds and ends, bibs and pacifiers. A useful and pretty gift. I purchased teething rings to serve as rings. Later they can be given to a small child to play with.
🌈Having seen many multi-colored quilts, I decided to make one of paper. I used these bright card stock pieces to weave together a colorful page. I added Mediterranean theme stamps from Stampin Up to give it a theme. 🌈
💫This lady in green acrylics is a mixed media piece based on paper, acrylics and gesso. Very abstract art in the background and to color the lady.💫
🌷Texture paste on die cut ladies was used as the focal point for this mixed media work. Acrylic paints were used on a paper textured base. This was added to my mixed media journal.🌷
🌺Making a metallic 3D picture is really fun. I used a picture board and painted it with black gesso. I black-gessoed a picture I had done and didn’t like. I then cut the picture into pieces and as the pieces are of chipboard I was not able to cut them into particular forms. However the oddness of the shapes are fun to play with. I stuck each piece down with hot glue. Added metallic Viva Inca gold paints for effect.🌺
🐰These cute bunnies were made in the hoop. This was a purchased design and I made two of the sizes for a gift for a baby. The design is on Etsy. “Beestitchin” it is called Flopsy Bunny.🐰
🌸This sweet little die cut by Sizzix makes the cone. I made a bouquet using foam die cut flowers wrapped in purple tulle and glue gunned into the cone. The die has little holes so that you can thread ribbon through as I have done here. I added a little card too. Cute🌸
For this two page mixed media piece I used Dylusions Shimmer Ink , texture paste designs made with stencils, and stamps from Stampin Up. I was very pleased with the ink effect.
🌸This chipboard base was embellished with die cuts, Dylusions ink glimmer spray and flowers made with Heartfelt Creations flower stamps and dies.🌸
This is my second piece of mixed media art. I used gesso, paper squares for the background, Jane Davenport faces paper, diecuts of various brands. Tattered lace castle die and Heartfelt Creations dies for the flower.
Yesterday I watched mixed media YouTube’s the whole day. In the evening I got these two pages started and I completed them today. They are really colorful. For me it is very different to have a “messy” type of work but it is really fun and creative to do. I placed both of them in a journal.
The texture work was created on cardstock and the paper faces are Jane Davenport. The composition was my own.
Well, it seems as if one moves from one craft to the other as the mind expands by trying out different craftsand finding even more lovely things to do.
So, today I watched YouTube videos about mixed media and was excited about this one by Maremi’s SmallArt. She gave a wonderful lesson as well as some lovely philosophies about craft.
If the video does not run here you can find it on YouTube. Maremi’s SmallArt “1 texture 3 ideas”.
💐Want to make a lovely gift for someone? Here is something you can try. This bottle was embellished with Heartfelt creations Paper and diecuts. The lady is cut out of sticky glitter foam using the Tattered Lace Art Deco lady.💐
i decided to make some decoupage bottles using the Art Deco theme. I made flowers from HeartfeltCreations dies. The Art Deco ladies are Tattered Lace Dies.
I received some great fabric for repurposing from the clothes company XCVI. #xcvidiy. I made the sofa by using the fabric, tissue box, filling and a glue gun. You can find all kinds of sofa designs for dolls on YouTube. The pillow and green rug were made with embroidery designs for an electronic sewing machine but could quite easily be done by hand with alternative designs.
Sewing, machine embroidery, paper-craft, and stamping are my hobbies. At the moment die-cutting paper craft is my favorite, and I am sharing my projects with you on this website.
